[inaudible] holding material because of the stories coming out, is at least another theoretical possibility as stores are being sourced from within the metropolitan police? >> i'm sorry, i don't follow your. >> could it not be the opposite, whether paid or otherwise information, rather than necessary being the place that the media outlets already have it? [inaudible] >> well, we always, we will always be accused of that. i can say with absolute confidence, because i know what's been there. for instance, when there was speculation around victims of 77 bombings, we did not know that they were contained within our material. >> thank you for the answer that i wasn't accusing. >> is a natural thin

, south carolina, utah and i am leaving out north carolina and illinois because those are the big jackpot states with a really driving party potential for gain. than i have a question mark as far as which party is going to gain a seat or lose a seat and it could be a fair fight in states like iowa, new jersey and arizona are go but i'm sure the five states we'll be talking a lot about this morning and i will stop short in going on depth in this are illinois and north carolina which are opportunities for partisan capitalization on this redistricting. illinois for democrats picking up potential a five or six seats or four or five seats republicans losing five or six and illinois. north carolina where i put republican gains have possibly three seats be the -- depending on the legal challenge to the mass republicans are proposing and then california where he think democrats at the end of the day will probably pick up two or three seats as a result of the entangling of california's uncompetitive line at the moment. texas where i expect republicans netting two seats depending on the legal chall
big story start out with a reporter and i would report bbb announced by the investigative jury where they may have brought information about the right context of the news editor. it is at that stage of the newspaper where the reporter knew the variety of information go out and check the allegation and come back. you can imagine every news aper gets a lot of information and only a percentage come a very small percentage make a vacation. are many layers who are consistent news editor to news editor. finally the story will coach the back bench, which will be the people that will oversee that story and we often talk to the reporter directly with questions and amendments to accompany the lawyer involved at this stage throughout the process and then finally the final publication will be made by the editor and how prominent it was. and obviously, it's a terrible news story. and it would've been covered covered by on newspapers and for a very long time the trial had been finished. >> for something like this, would it have been better to expect that it was the editor on duty that the lawyers
the august 2 deadline as is if it is no big deal. they say they have their owneal theories about when the real deadline is. that just leaves me dumbfounded. i for one i'm going to take the treasury secretary and virtually every economist at their word.ot we need a solution before august august 2 or we risk economicstr. catastrophe. who there are some members who are essentially saying that the treasury can pirate sites payments to avoid default byt b getting social security checks out shouldn't be a problem. i we pro. heard their republican member onon public radio this pt weekend say that a pirate for social security checks taxes in the trust fund. well, yes, we have $2.6 trilliot in assets in the trust fund, but they are all in treasuries securities, not cash. i find it just stunning that a a member of congress let alone a i member of the budget committee understand the most basic functioning of our government. lit now, if there is no debt limit increase, treasury may be able to juggle payments to get social security checks out on august 3. and i'mo sure they will do do everything t
at this if there is evidence of illegal activity than big questions have to be answered and i am sure the leader of the opposition will ask those questions and make sure -- >> were there any meetings between neil wallace and mr. coulson when he was working for the prime minister at number 10 downing street? >> i don't have that information. far worse for me to give an answer that could turn out to be inaccurate. i will get back to you with that information. >> members on this side are right. want as to move on from excessive focus on this issue but are ask the prime minister how he is able to end the practice of journalism regularly paying police officers for a quick scooped? >> we need to do a number of things. the police investigation into corruption which is overseen by someone on the outside and work to improve the ethics and standards but also there will be the inquiry which will do a job of working on this on the panel of the former chief constable, understanding how the police service works and we can deal with this problem. >> i feel confident in the police being affected by allegations
the prime minister agree that in the past when the house of commons has been faced with big issues, he's had a tendency for knee-jerk overreactions and would he agree that newspapers are a force for good in this country and what we want at the end of this process is criminality weeded out of the america but nothing that impinges on a free press, free speech and holding people in authority to account? >> i think my honorable friend is entirely right about this and we have to make sure as a house of commons, as a government as an opposition as a debate that we have about this to show an element of restraint in the regulation of the media because there is always a danger that the pendulum swings too far the other way and we start to threaten investigative journalism, a strong and independent media, one that can call government to account and when we consider some of the scandals that have been uncovered in recent years, it's often been the press that have done it and not the regulators. we'll come on to this i'm sure in the debate we'll have later but it's absolutely vital we maintain that brit
